Annual accounts - piece of cake or a deal breaker? 

Wednesday, 21 March, 2018
Florence, Italy

Turn of the year is usually a busy time for everyone, but especially for Interreg programmes and not only because of Christmas preparations but because of the annual accounts. By 15 February 2018 the annual accounts for the period 01.07.2016 - 30.06.2017 should be prepared and submitted to the European Commission. It is not the first submission in general but for the majority of Interreg programmes previous accounts covered zero eligible expenditure. 

The preparation and submission of annual accounts require close cooperation of key programme authorities (mainly Managing, Certifying and Audit Authority) over a very tight period. During autumn, the full control cycle has to be completed through management verifications, by the MAs as well as the auditors.

By the time the meeting takes place, the programmes will have already submitted their accounts and the meeting aims at exchanging experiences and learning for the next year. This is why we would like to bring together MAs, CAs and AAs of Interreg programmes to discuss jointly their feedback, exchange good and bad experiences and commonly find ways to improve the process for the future.

The main objectives of the event are for programmes authorities to: learn from others on best practices implemented, to familiarise themselves with ways challenges could be overcome and to identify ways the process of submission of annual accounts for the programme can be improved.

Please note that the event is targeted at MAs, CAs and AAs representatives who are directly responsible for preparation and submission of annual accounts in Interreg programmes. 

In order to ensure best environment for effective exchange we have to limit overall number of participants. As we would like to invite representatives from different Member States and programmes, we aim at accepting maximum 2-3 representatives per programme/Member State. Especially in case of same authority (CA or AA) covering multiple programmes. 

The event if fully booked and registration has been already closed.
